    Professor Marcio Santos featured in the Lake Highlands Advocate

    Fighting Chance Perched behind his desk at Lake Highlands’ RCJ Machado Jiu-Jitsu studio, wire-rimmed glasses on his nose, piles of paperwork at his fingertips and a rescued Chihuahua mix named Rocky at his feet — Marcio Santos has come a long way since his days as a rebellious teenager picking fights on the streets of Rio de Janeiro. Racism and segregation beleaguered his Brazilian barrio in those days, he says, his accent distinct despite more than a decade in the United States. But it wasn’t entirely bad — after all, a skirmish with a black classmate opened the door to capoeira, a martial art that would become a lifelong passion, and the culture surrounding it. ....

  • Ahem!


    You know, sometimes parents come in to our kids martial arts program and say: "You know... If I'd known my kid would love it this much, I'd have signed him up ages ago!" See, usually these parents were really busy, and were afraid to risk their time on something their kids wouldn't like. The truth is, martial arts isn't for every child. Yes, you are risking your time by trying it out! But... (And it's a big "but") MOST kids absolutely LOVE it! They simply can't get enough of it, and it's the one thing they drag you too (not the other way around!). If you're in the situation above, there's a good chance you're going to look back years from ....
